The Huntsville Times
A key NASA contractor laid off 102 aerospace workers in Huntsville Tuesday, sources said, bringing to nearly 300 the number reportedly sent home in the last week as the Constellation rocket program collapses toward a funding deadline today.
Jacobs ESTS group, a prime contractor for Constellation, made the cuts, according to workers who asked not to be identified and a new Facebook page called Huntsville Space Professionals.
Jacobs terminated another 185 workers last week, according to one poster to the Facebook page created to link laid-off workers with jobs.
Boeing is also expected to announce 100 layoffs in Huntsville this week.
